This book is the first in a series to be published on social dances of Southern Portugal. Its contents result from six months of field research included in a project meant to collect information on how people used to dance in the region of Alentejo (Project Arquivo das danças do Alentejo). This first volume focus on two repertoires: dances to songs with no instrumental support from South Alentejo (Castro Verde), and called waltzes from Western Alentejo (Melides).
